Oh Boy, Oh Boy!

Made baby shower giveaways last night. I wanted to use the new 2 3/8" Scallop Circle Punch but I don't have the right circle punch to go with it. So I went back to the original 1 3/4" Scallop Circle Punch and the 1 3/8" Circle Punch with the message "Oh Boy! Here comes baby ____." Still turned out cute as it embellished a plain old water bottle wrapped with 1 1/2" strips of leftover Urban Garden Designer Paper.


Also, we made goodie bags tied with one of Stampin' Up's ribbon. We stamped "Hello" and "Baby" from the Tiny Tags set, punched them and attached them to the ribbon tie with a bitty tiny safety pin. Ta-da...instant giveaways!

Wicked Treats!


I don't celebrate Halloween with all its goblins and ghosts galore, but I finally bought my first *halloween* stamps, Wicked Cool from Stampin' Up!  I couldn't resist the cute witch's boots.  So my stampin' friends and I got busy yesterday trying to figure out how to make Candy Wrapper boxes into Wicked Treats.  They're way cute but the folding was a little tricky.  I had to watch Barb Mullikin's video several times:  http://www.barbstamps.com/my_weblog/videos/


 Wicked Treats done!


 Even this lil' girl wanted to join in...start 'em young!


 And finally, a Wicked Cool card!
